The Improvement and Innovation Show - Digital Innovation & the outlook for 2017
Over the past years, the idea that ‘Every business is a digital business’ has moved from aspiration to reality. With the ever-increasing pace of change and the maturation of technologies now disrupting industries as diverse as manufacturing, finance and transportation, how will these innovations impact the workplace, change the way we conduct business and impact growth and productivity?
